M for Montréal - Leonard Cohen Eats There


by Kevin Pearson, PopMatters Events Editor,6 February 2009

It’s a question posed to me by two girls working for a radio station called CHOQ.

On Saturday evening, though, sandwiched between the funny-for-a-minute comedian Jon Lajoie, and the pulsating dance-punk of We Are Wolves, Karkwa, proved that perhaps language, when used as an instrument instead of a story-telling device, really doesn’t matter.

In essence, are, for all intents and purposes, a foreign language band. Thom Yorke's enunciation often takes literal meaning out of what he is singing, but in return it pours additional meaning onto the songs through sheer emotion. Karkwa never come close to topping Radiohead or Sigur Ros, but if one band were to break through the language barrier, and provide Canada’s French-speaking provinces with an internationally recognized act, it might just be this four-piece.(...)
